Now that the Presidents State of the union speech is over and all the mudslinging is in full tilt thought I would chime in with a bit of perspective. As is inevetable no sooner is the speech over and we have members of the opposite side of the isle chiming in with everything that was missing in the speech or finding fault with what was said. To all of you Republican and more directly “Tea Party” members. Here is a news flash, You lost the last two presidential elections and you lost them soundly. The people spoke and no matter how much rhetoric you spew forth it will not change the fact. It even has become apparent that the speaker of the house has grown tired of the tea party and the havoc it has caused in the republican party. I just read that Sen. Cruz still thinks it is possible to repeal Obamacare, Mr. Cruz I tell you this. You have tried to do this around fifty or so times already with no success. Maybe it is time to stop beating this dog as it is becoming a real bore. You and your cheerleading section of which include, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh just to name a couple first class circus acts are in mine and many others opinion out of touch with reality. The real problem is the republican party which cannot or just will not meet the other side on virtually anything. You reduce the benefits of our veterans. But it is just fine for you in Washington to get raises and big fat retirement benefits. I even hear some in the party referring to Afghanistan as Obama’s war. That my friends tells me you must have forgotten about way back when the party controlled the whitehouse that you put us there as well as Iraq.

The party has continued to alienate the people and refuse to do the job that they were elected to do. But I must say that the democrats are obviously not without fault. They also continue to follow blindly some of their own agendas. You people in Washington are like a bunch of spoiled little toddlers who throw a hissy fit when you don’t get your candy when you want it. I think at this point you need to understand it is not about you but about what is really best for the citizens of this country and even more importantly for the ones who have put their lives on the line or have died this country and given you the ability to sit there in the capital and enjoy your fat checks and perks of being in office. The choices you are making are making this great country weaker in the global community and if it continues we at some point will become irrelevant and fall by the wayside of history no differently then ancient Greece or the Roman empire. It is time to stop bowing before the super pacs and lobbyist and do what is right for us. The tea party has become irrelevant and the Karl Roves a mere joke. For the democrats I say this whole thing with the NSA spying on the citizens of this country is far from the transparency promised during the Presidents first election campaign.
This is setting a dangerous presidence for the freedom and personal rights of the American people. Secret courts and wiretapping against us in the name of protecting us from terrorism is not a good course to continue. If you would direct more of the financial resources to the issues of clean energy and less to the afore mentioned perhaps we could rid ourselves of dependence on foreign oil and therefore would no longer perceive places like the middle east as a strategic interest. Perhaps this would stop some future wars and as a nice side effect maybe less would be less people would want to attack us. I think that in more then one instance in recent history we went from being perceived as liberators and more as occupiers. It is more than time we got ourselves out of these countries and took care of things back here at home. I am not proposing we become isolationist. If human rights are being violated then we must do what we must with the help of other countries. America has to return itself back to the days of knowing what was morally right and wrong. Our kids,Our soldiers are killing themselves because of things like PTSD and being unable to cope after returning from these wars. I think they are more important then some whack job over in North Korea running his mouth. Let China handle them.. They created the monster let them deal with it. They can not afford instability in the region either.
